KPIX 5 Morning Weather Anchor Roberta Gonzales answers the questions you never get to ask on-air.
Q: Roberta, I listen to KCBS Radio. Did I hear you say it will be 108 degrees Wednesday? Where? – Pat Thomas, San Francisco.READ MORE: Dixie Fire Update: Wildfire Grows To 142,940 Acres; Major Spot Fire Threatens Twain
A: Hi Pat, yes, you heard correctly! 108 degrees in the hottest locations inland. In particular, I have my eye on Fairfield.
Get ready, the heat is on! As of tomorrow, Tuesday, the Bay Area will be experiencing rising temperatures. High Pressure will heat up the atmosphere and I expect Fairfield will hit 106 Tuesday and 108 Wednesday. That means many East Bay neighborhoods will be in the triple digits for the next couple of days. As temperatures peak on Wednesday, a “Heat Advisory” may be issued.READ MORE: COVID: California 7-Day Positivity Rate Rises To 4.9%, Sparks Pleas To Vaccinate
I will keep us all posted on exactly when and where the Advisory will encompass, as the temperatures soar near and shattered records.
Meanwhile, please be mindful of the elderly, the young and pets. Do not stay outdoors for long periods of time. Avoid exercising in the heat of the day and stay hydrated. Keep an eye on your forecast on the cbsSF Weather Page.MORE NEWS: Person On Tracks Hit, Killed By Caltrain In Burlingame
